Conflict of interest allegations and the legality of voting on a topic not listed as an action item on the agenda were debated Tuesday, when Uvalde County Underground Water Conservation District directors rejected two proposals before giving tentative and divided approval to the tax rollback rate.

According to the Uvalde County Appraisal District, that rate is 1.22 cents per $100 valuation, two-hundredths of a cent more than the current rate of 1.20 cents.

Public input and adoption was scheduled for 6 and 6:30 p.m., respectively, on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The motion to increase the district’s tax rate by 8 percent, made by Federico Flores, was seconded by Jim Maixner. Discussion indicated the amount should equal, not exceed, the rollback rate which is equal to 8 percent above the effective tax rate.
